Franklin's Star Is Defaced
Soul legend ARETHA FRANKLIN has become the latest celebrity to have their star on Hollywood Walk of Fame defaced by anti-fur protesters.
The shared star belonging to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, unveiled in April 2004, was recently vandalised with the words "Fur Hags!", while Sharon Stone's marker on the Hollywood Boulevard, which she received in November 1995, has been daubed with "Old Fur Hag!".
And now Franklin's tribute has also fallen victim to vandalism - the plaque has been inscribed with the words "Fur Hag!"
The singer was last year (08) named and shamed by officials at campaign group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) - who targeted Franklin for repeatedly donning real animal pelts.
